BUT I am amazed and sometimes puzzled by the turn of events that happen in our lives.
I think about Geneva and Her family and how God allowed our family,while living through a nightmare ourselves, to save her family from being homeless in 2007 and then to help them buy their own home for the first time in their life.
Then less than two years later for us to be kicked out of the condo where we were living for the same reason Geneva and her family were kicked out. We had no money to buy the condo. The owner wanted us out ASAP - same with Geneva.
She had received a phone call saying they had 4 weeks to get out
We got a letter from the owners lawyer stating we had 24 hours. Of course we could not get out in that short time. But by the next month we were out. (A dear friend came to our rescue.)
The week after Geneva found out they were being kicked out their only car, which was in really bad shape, broke down on the highway and they had no money to get it fixed.
(We were able to get a dealership to almost give us a 2001 minivan for them.)
Well - the same day we found out that we were being kicked out of the condo our car broke down on I-85 as I was trying to get Trammell to Roger C. Peace for physical therapy.
We had no money for repairs but God provided a way.
NOW if you will remember this past Christmas Geneva's van was repossessed after she had gotten a loan from "TitleMax" after she lost her job a few months before. (Her unemployment benefits did not start UNTIL FEBRUARY! and they had NO money coming in!)
AGAIN GOD made a way. A group in Charleston, SC who had heard about our family had a fundraiser and raised $800.00. We were able to put $300.00 with that and found a car for Geneva's
family and surprised them with it the week after Christmas. IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!
WELL - here we are - living through what Geneva lived through AGAIN.
Our minivan broke down 3 weeks ago as I was trying to get to "Sams" to pick up diapers for David and food for the month.
It had to be towed in and is STILL in the garage. The repairs are now over $1,200.00.
I don't even have $120.00!! BUT I know that GOD WILL MAKE A WAY!!!!!! HE ALWAYS DOES!!!!
It is so amazing how GOD brought Geneva and me together and it's even more amazing how we keep living through the same nightmares.
I know God Has A Plan in ALL of this.
And I Know It Is AN AWESOME PLAN!!!!!
